    “We enjoyed the full itinerary set for our trip and our guide, Krish. We especially enjoyed Kidepo Valley National Park for Cats , Kidepo Valley National park the view and the game was so spectacular . we loved pineapple he actually bought us a couple of them and had the hotel staff at Savana Lodge prepared the pineapple for us where we ate it poolside. We enjoyed all the lodges that we stayed in during our trip. The entire trip was a great was a great experience!

    We recently spent a week in Kidepo NP and having visited numerous other NPs in both Uganda and the rest of Africa, base this review on experiences here in comparison. This is a beautiful NP and I am so glad we visited but……
    Go here for the amazing scenery, the magnificent herds of elephants and to witness buffaloes in their thousands. Its not a NP to statistically see the cats that many travel here to see. Yes there are Cheetahs and Lions and yes we did see them during our visit but I think its only right to say that for others only spending a couple of nights here, there is little chance of seeing them. Our sightings were at significant distances and we spent the days and hours looking for them with a guide. It is wild, rugged and beautiful and at times, you feel like you are the only ones in the park but for us, we didn’t feel it was anything special when comparing it to other places we have been lucky to visit. If you go for the scenery and experience of a more untouched location you won’t be disappointed.

    On a family visit to Uganda, we were told about Kidepo. We have had an unforgettable visit to this amazing sanctuary tucked away in north Uganda. Its not as well known as its Kenyan or Tanzanian cousins, which means fewer tourists and a more enjoyable game watching experience. We stayed at the Apoka Rest Camp – a set of Uganda style circular rooms called ‘bandas’ with ensuite shower and toilet. It was delightful to step out of our room to see the pumbas trotting around, the jackals loping about at night and in the early mornings, the waterbucks drinking at the waterhole in the camp and, of course, the gorgeous African sunrise and sunset. Not to forget a memorable road-side leopard sighting in broad daylight.
    Must do’s include game drives, including the drive to see the ostriches, and the guided walk with a ranger. This reserve has the largest number of Cape buffaloes anywhere, apart from the easily sighted antelopes and deer, elephants, giraffes, zebras and a huge variety of birds, and the not so easily sighted lions – we heard the lions roaring in the vicinity of the camp.
    A must go when visiting Uganda.

    We had a great time with this company. Our guide Alex was a magnificent guide with eyes like a hawk (I am sure in a match with a hawk, he could actually outsee it!). He gave us an amazing experience. He wasn’t so talkative, but knew the answer to every question we asked him. The cook was also really great.
